I love Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, but hate all the junky ingredients in the bottled stuff you buy ? So I made up my own recipe made with only the best, all-natural ingredients!
When I stopped to buy some more mineral water at the grocery store today, I noticed they had large Wild Caught Shrimp on sale for $4.99 a pound! What a great deal, right?!?
And it’s probably a surprise that although I do cook most of the meals at our house, Ray really enjoys cooking and is pretty good at it too. I didn’t think twice, I knew he was more than capable of making his own dinner… with a little help from me, of course.
While Ray was cleaning his shrimp, I made up a batch of my Thai Sweet Chili Sauce (yes I’m still cooking while fasting, it’s really not that bad). When I first attempted to make Gluten-Free Bang Bang Shrimp at home and went to buy a bottle of Thai Sweet Chili Sauce for the sauce, I was shocked at all the nasty ingredients. And that there was not any suitable, more natural option available.
So, I made up my own recipe. Duh.
It’s a simple as mixing up a few real-food pantry staples and simmering them until thick.
